Gang,

Title says it in a nutshell. I'd love to hear if someone is actually using one of these machines, as they are fun to use, and what it's like.

Thanks,
Sean

P.S.: No, I won't try to get you to sell yours to me if you answer :)

Programs for the HP-IB drive? Do you mean something such as the HPDrive disk emulator software? I have used that with my HP-85/86/87 and it works well.

You can find programs here:

For the HP 85,86 or 87 look under Resourses\Software and 80 Series

Thanks to all for the excellent replies. I noticed that there is an HP-85 on the 'bay right now, item 321358147757 (not mine), that comes with the disk drives. I would think a person could do quite a few fun things with these software packages online and the hardware.
